Columbarium

  

But the souls of the just are in the hand of God, and no torment shall touch them. They seemed , in the view of the foolish, to be dead; and their passing away was thought an affliction and their going forth from us, utter destruction. But they are in peace. For if before men, indeed, they be punished, yet is their hope full of immortality; Chastised a little, they shall be greatly blessed, because God tried them and found them worthy of himself.  Wisdom 3:1-5

Hours of Operation:  8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

GSCC Columbarium Mission Statement

To profess our faith in the “Communion of Saints,” Good Shepherd Catholic Community visually expands the sacred space of our church into the Marian Garden. This sight of the Columbarium provides us with a serene and reverent environment to celebrate the unity in Christ of all the redeemed, those on earth and those who have died. Each week at Mass we remember our loved ones who have gone before us and each year we celebrate the Feast of All Souls in the Marian Garden.
